So, this is basically incredible.
Thicke teamed up with Fallon and his wonderful house band, the legendary Roots crew, for a unique acoustic take on his international fan favourite of a single- they performed the entire track using instruments found in a music classroom. From a kazoo to a banana (yep) and spoons, it’s a fantastically-creative rework of the popular single; so much so, that Robin’s vocals end up becoming a bit of a sideshow to the ludicrous instrumental performance from all involved. Arrested Development fans-there’s even a real wood block involved (season 4 reference).
As if all of the above wasn’t enough, there’s a Black Thought verse thrown in for good measure, as he fills in for T.I. with a quickfire offering of his own, adding what is a great final touch to an excellent performance. Must-watch stuff for sure, if only for the sight of a banana being used as an instrument.
